Item description for The Biblical Survival Manual by Carolyn J. Baker...
Overview Throughout our lives, we've heard references about God from a variety of sources, both secular and religious. Yet it is through the scriptures that God reveals His character to us and displays His love, faithfulness and purposes. This is a book of compiled scriptures for Christian believers to meditate on and delight in. The purpose of this book is to share the goodness of the scriptures and encourage fellowship with God through His written Word. Life for all of us is full of challenges and battles. We fight everything from simple misunderstandings to gross injustices. We experience health problems, economic downturns, and moral failure. From loved ones to leaders, we sometimes find ourselves deceived or betrayed. There are times and seasons in everyone's life where it seems like there's no one on earth to trust. However, we have a Heavenly Father Who loves and cares for us. As we grow in our personal relationship with God, He develops a history of Himself in each one of our lives as He leads us victoriously through life's seasons and daily challenges. God in His Word teaches us how to forgive, how to cast aside bitterness, how to pray and how to go on. He brings victory into the darkest places. His purpose is not always to shield us from adversity, misunderstandings and heartache, but He walks with us and leads us through life's difficult seasons in victorious ways. The Biblical Survival Manual is a unique compilation of God's Word, providing guidance for us as we journey through life. Amongst other things, this manual serves as: A Book of Encouragement meant to strengthen those going through the difficult seasons of life A Book of Inspiration for those seeking to learn more about the mercy, faithfulness and love of God A Book of Prayer & Spiritual Warfare for those willing to enter into intercessory prayer for others A Book of Reconciliation for those seeking to return home after a prodigal's journey A Scriptural Guide & Reference for all those seeking after God's heart and desiring to know His truth This manual is meant to enrich and strengthen you in your own unique journey. Read it, enjoy it and treasure it! You will not only want copies of this valuable reference for yourself, but copies also for your cherished friends, family members and associates.

PERFECT May 16, 2007
I'd recommend this book to ANYONE who is bent on growing and developing their relationship with Christ. In it is scripture for every battle, victory, prayer, encouragement and occasion you'll need!
Two things to note: 1) All of the scriptures are either in King James or Amplified versions 2) Beware of context. As with any book that lists individual scripture, you *must* be aware of the context. I believe that there are many, many (individual) verses in the Holy Bible that can be separated from it's chapter or it's book, twisted and taken out of context to mean whatever Whomever needs it to. In this book, though I believe the author (who is amazing, by the way) means well, there are a couple of instances where this sort of thing occurs. So it's a good idea to pull your Bible out and read the passage from which the scripture comes (which would be a good idea whether you had to worry about context or not!)
Definitely worth the $17 I paid for it! I would have paid $40 if I had to- I don't go anywhere without it anymore! :)
Great resource! Feb 27, 2005
This book is an excellent way to find scriptures by topic. I have used the manual as a preparation tool for many lessons and for personal study. I highly recommend this to everyone! We plan on giving these out to our high school youth group next month.
A wonderful scripture resource for daily living Feb 22, 2004
This book is an excellent resource for anyone who's hungry for more of the Word of God. It's compiled scripture only (i.e., no interpretations) and covers topics ranging from strictly spiritual topics (prayer, faith, spiritual warfare, etc.) to issues of character development and challenges of daily living.
Anyone who loves the Word of God will treasure this book. It is a wonderful hands-on tool for anyone serious about their Christianity and their daily walk with God. My recommendation: order more than one copy -- this is a book you'll want to give away to your friends!
